The authorities are encouraging residents living near the volcano to evacuate due to increased activity, according to local media.

Areas in Ecuador’s Quito region (see map) have been evacuated as the Tungurahua volcano continues to erupt. Authorities have been forced into making plans to evacuate residents of Ecuador’s Banos region as the Tungurahua volcano continues to vent.
